Hi, I thought my FIL (in his 80's) might enjoy the wonders of the web so I thought I'd see about a PC for him to try out. It would be for VERY basic use, web and email and definitely not for anything else.
I thought of an Acer Aspire Revo but as it's just to 'try out' I was looking at spending the absolute minimum at the moment. A laptop screen would be too small so a netbook/laptop is not an option. His HD TV has VGA input.
As the PC would be just for the web, would I be better off getting a cheap second hand base unit and run Ubuntu on it.
